Unworldly Fitness Climbing Wall with Odd Challenges in Tokyo > Freshome
This from Illoiha Omotesando fitness club in Tokyo, designed by Nendo on the theme “becoming beautiful through movement”. Other work from Nendo includes karaoke-tub, a karaoke room designed to feel like a bathroom.
Being beautiful through movement is something I can live for. Beauty in the classical sense is the development of an aesthetic, a ‘turning on’ to art and wonder. Developing an awareness of beauty through movement is as simple as creating a ritual around your everyday motion.
Do you take the time to become aware of your choices of movement? Why do you make the movements you do? Are they nervous and rushed, or fluid and full of feeling?
